EPA Seeks Comment on TRI Website

Lynn L. Bergeson Carla N. Hutton

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has asked users of the Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) Program’s website to complete a website satisfaction survey. EPA states that it wants users to find information easily on the TRI website and ensure that the information is complete and understandable. EPA asks users to “take 5 minutes and tell us what you like about the website and data access tools and how we can improve them.” EPA asks for responses by June 30, 2021.

The TRI website allows users to search to identify industrial facilities in their communities that release chemicals into the air, water, and land. Users can learn what chemicals these facilities release, how these facilities are reducing releases, and potential health impacts of these releases.
